He wanted the job in 2008. Our boosters still want him. I'm in hell
It might be worth it if he's willing to work for like $1 mil a season and you spend the rest on NIL. Oh, and don't let him pick his own staff.
double that to fire everybody, and tuition hikes will pay at least a chunk of that
texas does a horrible job at funding their public schools. nearly all of it goes to two schools to either flush down the toilet (a&m) or to build a vault with over a billion dollars in gold bullion to sit doing nothing (texas)
FSU paid $18 million to fire willie and it blew a hole in our budget for years and took serious lifting to accomplish. Seminole tribe themselves came in to drop the bags to get it done. We also didn't have to pay much to buyout his staff either.
Aggie just casually setting fire to $100M is an absolutely vulgar display of wealth.
I'm starting to talk myself into it. Last 5 years have sucked
I mean, he's not clueless. He probably beats bama and tennessee and doesn't get fired if Weigman doesn't get hurt.
If he's willing to work for a bargain basement price and bring in some decent coordinators, he could probably be a reliable 9-10 wins a season guy.
Forget head coach. He’s probably got enough to buy the entire state, and he could have his own Kim Jong Un situation where he is the head coach, governor, police commissioner, pilot, and every golf course record holder.
Honestly bob can recruit his ass off and is a really good evaluator. Only problem is his dissertation sized playbook and unequaled ability to squander talent advantages.
At the very least he’d build WVU’s roster up and give you 3-4 years of infuriatingly good message board material.
the governor is an actual billionaire ogre. No way jimbo can unseat him with football money.
How long until Jimbo is speaking at a Trump rally
Beat the pants off MSU and gets fired
Ahh shit, it’s been a nice run for the lions
Im all in on jimbob
Let's goooo. We're one of the better programs historically in the new B12. And none of the schools recruit way above the other like it is now with UT/OU
Counterpoint, FortWorth star-telegram: there is lots funny about firing Jimbo fisher
A&M needs to hire one of those slap competition champions to attend every meeting with the sole purpose of bitch-smacking anyone that says “quadruple it.”
I have wondered about the optics of if this if it were to happen. I'm sure not many care im Texas though
I don’t think many care about money being transferred from buzbee and oil dudes to jimbo. It’s not like much, if any, money from the university will be used to fund this
Just like to point out non self made billionaires any chance I get
Gus is going to take the Arkansas job and get another 20 million buyout in 5 years or so, and both buyouts combined will won't match Texas A&M
Combining buyout sunk costs with future salaries always seemed dumb to me and just a way to put a large number in a tweet for reaction engagement
Texas has a multibillion dollar budget surplus and is 44th in the country in education.
I was once on a consulting project where almost everyone was either spartan or aggie. The arguments they’d get into were incredible.
That’s kinda missing the point.
What if, hear me out, we properly taxed those people so they couldn’t spend money on tanks, ranches and football buyouts, and instead properly funded education, infrastructure, and social services?
Petrino as interim head coach. He wins out the last 2 games and a bowl game. A&M offers him an absurd guaranteed contract. Petrino does something stupid but A&M still has to pay him out.
Yeah I mean that sounds good. But it’s not happening any time soon. And I just don’t care if people want to spend their personal money on football coaches.
People wealthy from oil need to be taxed the fuck out of. Getting to reap the profits from something that has taken millions of years to form underground is basically theft. Even if the money was well deserved, nobody should be allowed to do whatever they want with it. Look up what Bill Gates did to public education with his money.
They've already announced the DL coach is the interim HC
this firing is going to cost Phil Knight some pocket change to keep Lanning.
AD has to lose his job over this right? Hell the president too?
You trying to replace aTm in delusion?
Nah, he’s getting tons of love for the hoops/baseball hires.
President already got fired for trying to hire a black person to lead their journalism school earlier this year.
you can't do a woke at A&M
There’s even a club to make sure of it
I'd like to see Lanning stay and be good at Oregon. Cfb needs some balance in the worst way
The first thing that needs to happen to help college football become more balanced is for your team to stop winning every god damn week.
I'm going to kidnap UGA and replace him with this.
Let's see how Georgia players rebound after they briefly think monsters are real.
Bjork roasting Jimbo in this presser. Somewhat refreshing.
Jimbo gonna really miss the unlimited use of the PJ
I really wish a real journalist would write an article about the texags politics board. It's absolutely appalling that Yahoo lets an outright white supremacist forum operate. Every single thread has multiple posts that would not be out of place on stormfront.
